The Homeless Shelter

Wednesday is Scout Day. Tonight we took the scouts to serve dinner at a homeless shelter. We had to supply all of the food and we couldn't cook at the Shelter so we had each of the kids bring a couple of cans of Chili and dumped them all in some crock pots. We also had a salad and corn bread muffins. I think it was an eye opener for the kids. ​After dinner we were given a tour of the facility. I felt like I was intruding as we walked right through a room with about 25 bunk beds set up in it but I guess if your in a single room with 25 bunk beds you have no privacy. They had a bunch of women in there too. All of the women were on one side of the room and the men on the other side. It was kind of sobering for the boys. On our way home we made sure we pointed out that this is why you want to do well in school.
